SiP 2016: Macbeth opens tonight!!

     SiP 2016 presents Macbeth September 26-Oct 1 Dundas Main Stage


Macbeth opens SiP 2016!

Election season is approaching, and Macbeth, MP for Long Island, is not content to be elevated to the post of Chairman of the Party. He has his sights set on being Prime Minister. There is only one person who wants him to have this post more, and that’s his wife. So what do they do? They dispatch the Prime Minister and anyone else who stands in their way!

Enter Ringplay’s own production of Macbeth, set in The Bahamas and featuring local politicians instead of Scottish kings and thanes. The witches? Talk show hosts. We’ve taken Shakespeare’s original language but tell the story in ways that hit home.

Led by David Jonathan Burrows as Macbeth and Carrie Collins as his Wife, the cast features Onik√© Archer, Patrice Francis and Jovanna Hepburn as the Weird Talk Show Hosts (aka the Witches), Mark Humes as Banquo, and D. Sean Nottage as Macduff. Tavaris Adderley, Theo Bonamy, Hartman Brown, Rossano Deal, Rashad Ferguson, Rudy Levarity, Nicole Musgrove, Leroy Strachan and Greg Stubbs round out the cast. Directed by Philip Burrows assisted by Erin T. Knowles.

Performances:
Monday September 26 8P
Wednesday September 28 8P
Friday September 30 8P
Saturday October 1 8P




We dedicate this production to the memory of the late Jane Poveromo,
founding member of Ringplay and Shakespeare in Paradise.
"Would she were here"!
